About Audicus


We partner directly with a leading manufacturer to keep prices low and reduce overhead. Because we buy our hearing aids at a high volume and don’t have the overhead of a brick and mortar location, we sell the same high-quality devices as an audiology center, but for thousands less. It’s not magic, it just feels like it.


We partner directly with leading European hearing-aid manufacturers. Our hearing aids are award-winning German-designed RIC and CIC models. We are constantly testing the newest hearing aids to ensure that we offer the best product to our customers.  


Audicus is a mainly an online hearing aid company with headquarters in New York City. We also currently have one brick-and-motor location in NYC.  But if you ever need us we are only a phone call, chat, or email away. 

Already have a hearing test from the doctor?

Great! You will submit your test to Audicus and we will use that information to program you hearing aids. If you know that you have had a hearing test, but do not have a copy, you have the medical right to request and receive a copy from your doctor.  

How the Online Hearing Test works

The Online Hearing Test was developed by MIT neuroscience engineers and is constantly being updated. The Audicus Online Hearing Test uses predictive pattern matching. It tests each ear twice at 6 frequencies to determine the hearing thresholds as a function of frequency and volume and uses error detection algorithms to ensure accuracy of the results. It is the only Online Hearing Test that provides enough detail that it can be used to properly program custom hearing aids. Take the test. 

Taking the Online Hearing Test

All you need to take the Online Hearing Test is an internet connection, 15 minutes, headphones, and a quiet setting. The test is free and easy to take and will give you a detailed hearing loss profile for each ear. We use the results to program custom hearing aids. No clinical audiogram needed. After we review your test, our team will contact you to go over the results and discuss any special settings or features you may need. Take the test.

Why we require a hearing test

Just like taking an eye test to get the right prescription for glasses, an up-to-date hearing test is necessary to program each hearing aid to your unique hearing loss. If you have a clinical audiogram from within the last year, submit it to get started. If you do not have a clinical audiogram, you can either take our free and super accurate Online Hearing Test or go to a local audiology center or doctor’s office.


After you submit your hearing test or take ours online, our expert in-house audiology team will program hearing aids to your unique hearing loss results. This is a complex process that requires extensive knowledge and expertise. 

Getting a hearing aid with Audicus

Getting a hearing aid should be affordable, accessible, and easy. We make it affordable by selling to you direct, for thousands less than those with middlemen markups. We make it accessible by offering the only Online Hearing Test that enables you to get custom hearing aids completely from home. We make it easy by offering unlimited access to our team of experts. Learn more about How it works.


Our hearing aids last on average about 5 years but can perform even longer with excellent care. The key to longevity is to store, clean, and care for your hearing aids properly. A little cleaning goes a very long way.


We partner with leading manufacturers to source German-designed, high-quality hearing aids. In fact, this is the same technology or better than what you would get with a local audiologist, just for thousands less in middleman markups. View products.

Common Hearing Aid Questions

How do Bluetooth hearing aids work?

Bluetooth hearing aids work by using wireless technology to connect to other devices, such as smartphones, tablets, or computers. This connection allows the hearing aid wearer to stream audio directly from these devices, such as phone calls, music, or other media.

The hearing aids have a built-in Bluetooth receiver that communicates with the transmitting device, using radio waves to send and receive data. The data is then processed by the hearing aid’s digital signal processor, which amplifies and processes the sound based on the wearer’s specific hearing needs.

In addition to streaming audio, Bluetooth hearing aids can also be controlled through smartphone apps, allowing wearers to adjust settings like volume, bass, and treble, and even change the program or mode of the hearing aid.

Overall, Bluetooth technology has greatly improved the functionality and convenience of hearing aids, allowing for seamless integration with other devices and a more personalized listening experience.

I’ve just been diagnosed with hearing loss. Do I need hearing aids?

The appropriate treatment for your hearing loss depends on its type and severity. Sensorineural hearing loss, which is the most common type, typically involves irreversible damage to the inner ear. However, the good news is that hearing aids can often enhance communication for the majority of people with this type of hearing loss.

There are so many different types of hearing aids! Which style is best?

There is no single “best” style. You’ll have many options to choose from based on your individual listening needs. Factors to take into account include your type and degree of hearing loss, lifestyle needs, cosmetic preferences and budget. The Audicus Audiology Team can help you make the right choice. 

Are hearing aids covered by insurance?

Although hearing aid coverage may be included in certain insurance policies, it may not be the case for others. It is advisable to contact your insurance provider and inquire about your hearing aid benefits. You can ask them to confirm whether you are eligible for any hearing aid benefits and what requirements must be met to receive them.

Will hearing aids restore my hearing?

Hearing aids are only meant to be an aid and cannot restore hearing once it has been lost. Hearing aids amplify sounds and speech signals for the purpose of aiding hearing, allowing you to communicate more effectively.

Do I need two hearing aids?

If you have hearing loss in both ears you should use two hearing aids. People who wear 2 aids report a higher level of satisfaction than purchasers of a single hearing aid.

Are Over-The-Counter (OTC) hearing aids recommended?

Over-The-Counter (OTC) hearing aids are not programmed for your specific hearing needs. They come preprogrammed and do not offer the same benefits as hearing aids that are programmed to your specific hearing loss profile. They also do not offer customer care after purchase. 

Are the hearing aids waterproof?

Hearing aid manufacturers have made huge advances in water-proofing their products. However NO hearing aids currently on the market are water-proof.

To understand our hearing aids’ level of moisture resistance we refer to an IP rating.

IP ratings classify the level of protection that the casing of a hearing aid provides against solids and liquids entering and damaging the device.

Audicus hearing aids have an IP Rating of 68. The 6 represents their ability to protect against dust that may harm the equipment. The 8 represents their ability to protect against temporary immersion in a moist environment.

For context, an Apple iPhone also has an IP Rating of 68.

Despite advances in moisture protection, hearing aids are still prone to humidity and perspiration.

Power Pack - what is it for?

  • The power pack allows you to get 7 full days of charge without needing an outlet. The power pack takes the place of the outlet. So you can enjoy your rechargeable hearing aids on the go!
  • To use the power pack, attach the power pack to the charging case (the charger that came with the hearing aids) and lock it.
  • Plug the power pack + charging case into the power supply for 3 hours.
  • The fully charged charger power pack offers 7 full charging cycles for a pair of hearing aids.
  • To check the remaining battery capacity of the charger power pack, press the battery check push button.

The Power Pack is available for Omni, Spirit and Wave rechargeable hearing aids.


Drying capsule - What is it?

The drying capsule’s role is to absorb moisture from the hearing aids. You insert the drying capsule into the charging case’s top pocket, with the pink side facing outward. The capsule absorbs moisture during the charging process, and will need to be replaced when its color changes from pink to white, which typically happens every three months.

Do I need a UV Dry Box?

The UV Dry Box is a great investment for your hearing aids. The UV Dry Box removes moisture from and sanitizes the hearing aid.

The UV Dry Box is for non-rechargeable models only. The battery is removed before placing the hearing aid in the dry box.

Ask These Questions:

  • Do you live in a humid climate?
  • Are you a heavy sweater?
  • Do you produce a lot of earwax?
  • Is excellent maintenance important to you?

The UV Dry Box will always be a great investment for all replaceable battery devices.

How do I connect to the TV with the TV Connector?

  1. Insert the micro USB end of the USB cable into the port on the backside of the TV Connector

  2. Connect the larger end of the USB cable to the power supply

  3. Insert the other end of the audio cable into the AUDIO OUT port of your TV

  4. Once connected to power, the LED turns green to indicate that it is ready to stream

  5. When the TV Connector is plugged into a power source for the very first time, ensure the hearing aids are switched on and within a 1 meter radius to allow automatic connection. Once connected, the hearing aids will play a confirmation tone

  6. The aids should now be connected to the TV Connector

Do I need the TV Connector?

The TV Connector is great for all types of TV’s.

If your TV is not Smart (does not have Bluetooth) then you must have the TV Connector.

If your TV is Smart you will be able to connect without the TV Connector but there are many benefits to the TV Connector :

  • Everyone can listen. With the connector you can stream the TV through your hearing aids and anyone watching TV can listen to the sound come through the TV speakers. Without the connector, only you will be able to listen to the TV audio.

  • Automatic Connection:  With the connector, you will automatically connect the hearing aids to your TV when you are within 30 feet of the TV. Without the connector, you have to manually connect to the TV in the Bluetooth settings each time you want to use it.

  • Very Easy to Use : The TV Connector is small and easy to use. The set-up is very straightforward and works very well!

Moisture and hearing aids

Moisture in the hearing aids can cause many issues. It is important to be vigilant against moisture damage. Earwax production is normal but if there is extra earwax production this can trap more moisture in the ear and it will take longer for the ear to dry. This will then cause issues for the hearing aid.

  • We recommend paying attention to earwax production and changing the accessories on time.
  • We also recommend a dry box that can suck moisture out of the hearing aids during the night.
  • Sweating is also an issue. We do not recommend working out while wearing the aids if it can be avoided.  Depending on the form of exercise, it may make it easier for the aids to fall out and become lost or damaged by the fall. If you do wear them and notice your ears are sweating, try to remove the aids periodically to dry out ears. A Dry Box can also help with sweat issues.
  • Ear Gear is a great company that specializes in hearing aid accessories. They have cloth covers for the hearing aids that can help with moisture.
  • Understand your Warranty. Consider a Protection plan.

How do I clean the hearing aids?

Routine cleaning and maintenance is essential to a long-lasting hearing aid.


  • Make sure your hands and ears are clean
  • Wipe your hearing aid and hearing aid dome with a soft dry cloth to remove dirt and oil. Consider using Audio Wipes.
  • Take your black brush and gently brush any openings/crevices on the hearing aids.


  • The domes should be replaced every 3 months. An old dome loses its shape and does not properly seal the aid. An old dome is more likely to fall off the aid in your ear!
  • Change your earwax guard every 3 months and anytime you are unable to hear out of the hearing aid. The earwax guard is the most important protector of your device from earwax.
Tips for loss prevention

Hearing aids are very tiny and expensive. They are easy to lose!

Make sure the hearing aids fit properly. Read more about Hearing aid fit.

Replace the domes regularly. Old domes lose their shape and function and are more likely to pop out.

Consider a hearing aid retention clip which makes it impossible to lose the device.

How can I prevent moisture damage?

Preventing moisture in hearing aids is important for maintaining their functionality and prolonging their lifespan. Here are some ways to prevent moisture in hearing aids:

  1. Use a drying capsule: A hearing aid drying capsule is a small container with drying beads that can absorb moisture from your hearing aids overnight. For rechargeable devices only.
  2. Use a UV Dry Box:  An electronic device that uses UV light to remove moisture from your hearing aids. For non-rechargeable devices only.
  3. Keep your hearing aids dry: Avoid exposing your hearing aids to water, such as when showering or swimming. Also, wipe your hearing aids dry after sweating or being in a humid environment.
  4. Open the battery compartment: When you’re not using your hearing aids, open the battery compartment to allow air to circulate and prevent moisture buildup.
  5. Use a hearing aid sweatband: A hearing aid sweatband is a cloth or foam cover that fits over your hearing aids to absorb moisture and protect them from sweat.
  6. Use a hearing aid sleeve: A hearing aid sleeve is a thin silicone or plastic cover that fits over your hearing aids to protect them from moisture and other environmental factors.
  7. Remove the batteries: When you’re not using your hearing aids for an extended period, remove the batteries to prevent them from corroding and causing damage to your hearing aids.


Storing your hearing aid

Our hearing aids come with a storage case and we recommend keeping your hearing aids in a case when not worn. Seriously, we can’t tell you how many pets see hearing aid and think “chew toy”. If you live in a very humid climate, or are likely to get your hearing aids wet, we recommend purchasing the UV dry box here.  

Repairs and Reprogrammings


Our warranty covers any needed reprogramming for the life of the device. Like a prescription for glasses, your hearing loss may change overtime. Or, we may need to make an adjustment once you’ve gotten used to wearing hearing aids for the first time. Learn more about the process HERE

If you think you may need a programming update, contact [email protected] or call 844-551-9920.

Cleanings vs. Repairs

More Repairs Info HERE

Earwax is the number one reason a hearing aid breaks or stops working. Cleaning is the most effective defense against hearing aid breakage. Please clean your device thoroughly before sending it in. Audicus reserves the right to charge $50 for a cleaning if no attempt at cleaning was made.  Audicus Clean & Care is available as a service if you need our assistance with the cleaning (free for Audicus Plus customers or with Audicus Protect).

If the hearing aid cannot be fixed by thorough cleaning,  Audicus is able to repair most devices in office.

On occasion, repairs need to be shipped back to the manufacturer. Examples of this kind of damage include moisture damage, damage from pet, and damage due to long periods of time without cleaning the hearing aids. 

What is the Audicus repair process?

More repair info HERE

80% of Audicus Repairs are due to earwax/dirt/debris build up. Most repairs can be avoided by proper cleaning and maintenance.

If you have tried to clean your device and think it may need a repair, call us at 844-551-9920  or email [email protected] Audicus will assign you a repair Support Order Number (SUPO) and provide shipping instructions. 

Follow the instructions to send your hearing aid into our office for evaluation.

Our technical team will evaluate the repair and assess how to fix it. The repair will fall into one of these three categories.

  • Clean & Care: Hearing aids that have stopped functioning due to a buildup of ear wax can be cleaned and checked for defects. The cost of this service is $40 for a single device / $50 for a pair. This process will take 1-2 days when in our office.
  • Manufacturer Repair: Hearing aids with more extensive damage will need extra servicing outside our office. A Manufacturer Repair will cost $199 per hearing aid and may take 7-14 days.
  • Replacement: If your hearing aids have been damaged beyond repair then you will be offered a trade-in replacement option for a brand new hearing aid model. The trade-in value will be based on the age and current condition of your devices. Our Customer Service specialists will contact you regarding the details of your repair and the trade-in value.

Tips for New Users

How do I put a hearing aid on?

We always recommend doing this in front of a mirror until you are more accustomed to the process.

  • First, make sure your hands are clean and dry to avoid transferring any dirt or moisture to the hearing aid.
  • Second, place the hearing aid body over the top of your ear
  • Pull down and back on your earlobe to ease insertion. Hold the receiver wire near the dome and gently push the dome into your ear canal. When inserted properly, the dome should not be visible in your canal. Use your pinky to ease insertion.
  • To take off the hearing aid, first, remove the dome using the receiver wire. Then, gently remove the body from behind your ear. Try to minimize pulling on the wire as much as you can!

Why did you fit my hearing aid with this dome?

Audicus will determine the dome style to be used on the device based on your hearing loss, and this can be Open, Closed or Double dome. Although we fit each hearing aid with a Medium size dome initially, we also provide Small and Large sizes in your package.

Omni all dome size

Which dome do I choose?

The three styles of dome are Open, Closed and Double dome. Audicus suggests one of those styles based on your hearing loss. We recommend using the style of dome that is suggested. If you are interested in switching to a different dome style please contact the customer service team.

Each hearing aid is fitted with size Medium to start. But we include Small and Large sizes in your box. If you are getting squealing (feedback) or if  Medium is too loose or too big, try a smaller or larger size.


Itchy ears - What to do?

Ways to Help Your Hearing Aids Last Longer - Big Easy Magazine

Some people experience itchy ears when wearing hearing aids.

Dome Fit

  • Fit is a big reason why someone may experience itch. One recommendation is to try a smaller dome. How old is the hearing aid dome? An old dome can cause irritation in the canal. We recommend changing the dome every 3 months.
  • When the ear is itchy, it is best to take out the hearing aids. Wait until the itch subsides before re-inserting the hearing aid.
  • All Audicus domes are medical-grade, hypoallergenic silicon pieces. However, occasionally, a person can be allergic to this material. A custom ear mold may be the best option for people allergic to hearing aid domes.

Lotions and Lubricants

  • EARGENE is a hypoallergenic lotion
  • OTO-EASE is a lubricant
  • Never use anything containing peroxides for itch.


Hearing aid fit

IF the hearing aid is falling out of the ear canal

  • Push the dome deeper in the canal.

  • Try a larger OR smaller dome.

  • Remove the retention guard.

IF the hearing aid is falling out from behind the ear

  • You may need a shorter or longer receiver wire.
  • Send pictures of the fit to us. We will have good suggestions!
    • Text: 929-467-7096
  • Consider a hearing aid retention clip so you can’t lose them.

What is the purpose of the dome?

The purpose of the dome is to seal the ear canal to prevent feedback and trap in necessary amplification. The dome also keeps the hearing aid fit and snug.

What is the retention guard?

  • The retention guard is the plastic tailpiece on the end of the receiver (speaker box). It is used for anchoring the hearing aid in the bowl of the ear.
  • The retention guard is shapeless. It will take about of week of daily wear for the lock to form to your ear.

  • If the retention guard is too long you can cut it with scissors. The retention guard is also removable if you do not want to use it.

How do I change the dome?

To remove the dome, hold the receiver with one hand and gently pull the dome off with the other hand. To replace the dome, line up the dome hole with the spigot of the receiver. Gently push the dome on. You may hear a click as it clicks into place. Tug on the dome to make sure it is securely locked onto the receiver before inserting into your ear.

More dome info

The Audicus dome is a hypoallergenic, medical-grade, silicon piece that goes directly in the ear canal. The purpose of the dome is to: 

  • seal the ear canal to prevent feedback
  • trap in necessary amplification   
  • keep the hearing aid fit and snug

There are 3 styles of dome Open, Closed and Double/Power dome. They differ in their ventilation.

  • Open domes have 6 holes and are very ventilated.
  • Closed domes have 2 holes and are less ventilated.
  • Double domes are 2-layered and have no holes.

*Your hearing care professional will determine which style dome will work best for your degree of hearing loss. 

Domes should be changed every 2-3 months. This is to prevent the dome from detaching and becoming lodged in the ear canal during insertion/removal.

Rechargeable FAQs

Can you damage the rechargeable hearing aid by leaving it in the charger overnight?

No, you can leave the hearing aid in the charger overnight. However we recommend removing the devices from the charger if you will not be using them for extended periods of time. If you leave the hearing aid in the charger for days this can affect the battery life significantly.

Can you damage the rechargeable hearing aid by leaving it in the charger too long?

Just like any other electronic device, it is not recommended to leave the hearing aid charging in the charging dock for long periods of time. Even if unplugged, the battery will drain faster if left in the dock for extended periods of time. If you are not using the hearing aid for a few days, we recommend leaving it out of the charger. 

How long do rechargeable batteries last?

Day to day, a hearing aid rechargeable battery lasts about 16 hours and needs 3-5 hours to charge. Bluetooth usage will drain the battery more quickly.

Attaching/removing the retention guard
The retention guard is the plastic tailpiece on the end of the receiver. It is used for anchoring the hearing aid in the bowl of your ear. Think of it like a kickstand on a bike. With a week of consistent hearing aid use, the retention guard will “learn” the shape of your ear.
The retention guard can be cut to fit more easily in the bowl of the ear. The retention guard can also be removed entirely if you don’t like it. To remove the retention guard first remove the dome. The retention guard is looped around the receiver. Gently pull the retention guard in the direction of the dome until it comes off.

How do I change the earwax guard?

If your hearing aid is not working or if the sound is very low, the first thing you should do is change your earwax guard.

  1. Remove the dome from the hearing aid. You should see the earwax guard on the end of the receiver. It is a small white circle.
  2. Find the spare earwax guards we sent – they’re in a black disk that has arrows around the perimeter.
  3. Insert the receiver of the hearing aid into the slot labeled “1.” This ejects the used earwax guard from the hearing aid.
  4. Insert the receiver of the hearing aid into the slot labeled “2.” This attached the new earwax guard to the hearing aid.
  5. Replace your dome on the receiver.

Dia II tubes and how to replace them

Dia II Tubes 

  • Tubes allow the sound to travel from the receiver in the casing of the hearing aid to the ear canal.

  • The tube comes in sizes Small, Medium, and Large.

  • We fit your hearing aid with size Medium when we send them out. If size Medium does not work, Small and Large size tubes are available.

  • Tubes have plasticity – they are rigid at first, but then take shape over time. Through body heat and usage, they soften up and conform to your ear.

Dia II Tube Replacing 

  • Dia II Tubes should be replaced once every 3 months as they get flimsy, deteriorate, and eventually break.

  • To change the Dia II tube, take the tube from the top of the hearing aids. Make sure you pinch where the tube meets the hearing aid body and twist counterclockwise.

Changing your Clara earwax guards
Clara Earwax Guards
The earwax guard is the most important accessory. Change the earwax every 2-3 months if the hearing aid stops working or has low sound amplification. 
To change your earwax guard:
1) Remove the dome from the hearing aid. The earwax guard will be the white circle on the receiver. 
2) Find the spare earwax guards we sent (grey case with black toothpicks inside)
3) Take out one black toothpick tool with the white end – this is the new earwax guard.
4) Use the end with nothing on it (non-white end) to remove the old ear wax guard. Stick the black toothpick into the earwax guard and pull it up out of the receiver.
5) Flip the black tool around and use the white end to place on the new earwax guard by sticking the new one into the same spot on the receiver. Put the dome back on.

Masks and hearing aids

Masks are causing a lot of issues for behind the ear (BTE) hearing aid wearers. With the hearing aids, mask, and many times glasses, there is very little real estate to work with behind your ear.

Make sure the hearing aid fit is good.

Consider a different type of mask that won’t interfere with the back of the ear.

A completely-in-canal (CiC) hearing aid like the Audicus Aura may work better. 

*If your hearing loss is too severe, you may not be a candidate for CiC

Consider Audicus Protect for loss

Consider a hearing aid retention clip, which makes it impossible to lose the hearing aid.

Personalizing your hearing aid

Hearing Aid DecorationsStickers are a great way to customize your hearing aid.

Pets and hearing aids

Cats and dogs are drawn to hearing aids for two reasons: sound and taste.

  • Hearing aids put out a sound that is very high pitched, higher than what humans can hear.  Cats and dogs, however, can hear it and go into “search and destroy” mode.  Unfortunately, what sounds like a chew toy to them is actually a very complicated miniature computer that you need to hear!
  • Hearing aids attract earwax, which tastes salty to pets, especially dogs.  They see hearing aids as a tasty treat, and can chew right through the device, causing permanent damage.

To keep your hearing aids safe from pets, make sure that if you are around a cat or dog the devices are safely worn in your ears. When not in use, place the hearing aids in a safe place.
